WorldWater & Power Corp. Begins Construction of $402,482 Solar System at International Center for Water Technologyadmin
WorldWater & Power Corp. , developer and marketer of proprietary high-power solar systems, announced here today the construction start of a $402,482 solar electric system at The International Center for Water Technology (ICWT) at California State University, Fresno’s new building located on the Fresno campus. Founded in 2001, ICWT educates, promotes and assists in the development and adoption of innovative technologies that improve water utilization, reduce energy demand and positively affect air quality. The rooftop photovoltaic system incorporates WorldWater’s proprietary Aquamax technology that is capable of powering electric motors up to 600 horsepower at variable speeds operating on solar power alone.
In making the announcement, David Zoldoske, ICTW’s Director said, “The system will be a valuable teaching tool for students, but it’s much more than that. This advanced technology ties into the Million Solar Roofs initiative recently signed into law by our Governor and it will be used as part of a business incubator for entrepreneurs interested in starting companies in the fields of water and renewable energy.”
The new building is a partnership between ICWT and the Central Valley Business Incubator. Five offices are available to start-up companies. They will have access to WorldWater’s solar system to help advance their technologies. ICWT will also help with the development of business and marketing plans, and introductions to industry.
Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman of WorldWater & Power commented, “We are delighted to be associated with the International Center of Water Technology to help future farmers and water management professionals utilize solar to reduce grid demand and improve air quality.”
WorldWater & Power Corp. is one of only two companies selected by the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) as a Preferred Solar Partner. WorldWater recently built the world’s first solar powered pumping system at a water utility for California’s Idyllwild Water District.
